    Hello, Love the panel! My ? is how does the magical express work in terms of is there a bus every hour etc? We will be arriving at the airport around noon. Thanks for all the great info!

    Hi Tammy,

    Magical Express has a large fleet of buses that are constantly cycling between resorts and the Orlando International Airport.  Once you arrive, there are signs posted directing you where to go (it is on the lower level of the airport).  If you opted not to use Magical Express to pick up and deliver your luggage,  you will need to get that first.  Otherwise, you first check in at the Magical Express counter then you will be directed to walk the red carpet (really!).  There are then different lines for all the resorts where you wait for the bus, and there seems to be a group leaving every 5-10 minutes.  

    By the way, on our most recent trip this summer, I timed how long it took for us to get to WDW once we arrived at the airport.  It was just a bit over an hour!

    Have a magical trip!
